The 2300 Club have presented a cheque for £1000 to Pendleside Hospice, following the success of their sell-out ‘Mullin Around’ reunion held last month.
The total was made up of money raised on the night, which was split between the Hospice and the Brain Tumour charity, in memory of Simon Bibby, and a top-up donation from the 2300 Club.
Co-organisers Pete Kenyon and Neil and Arlene Calvert handed over the cheque to Leah Hooper, community engagement officer. They were joined by Tesco Burnley community champion Mukhtar Mirza, who donated some very generous raffle items.
“On behalf of the Hospice, we would like to thank the 2300 Club for their donation. So much work went into organising the evening and it was such a success,” said Leah.
“Every year the Hospice has to find £4.5 million out of a total budget of £5.5 million, so this money is very, very important to us and makes a big impact on the work we do.”
Added Arlene: “It is such a pleasure to raise the money for the Hospice. They are so well-known within the community, almost everyone knows someone who has been affected. The work they do is remarkable.”
*The 2300 Club would like to thank everyone who attended ‘Mullin Around’, and to all the companies who donated to the amazing raffle, which was organised and hosted on the night by Arlene Calvert. They were: Tesco Burnley, Mini Sport of Padiham, Towneley Garden Centre, Sainsburys, Boots the Chemist, WH Smith and M&S.
